'SUMMER OF ROCKETS'
NEW KEELEY HAWES PHOTO!
We are kinda, sorta having a Keeley Hawes weekend here, celebrating the year in which currently leading British female star will be appearing in almost every other TV project to the delight of the fans! Today, a lovely new photo of
her from BBC's new six part series SUMMER OF ROCKETS which, set in the tumultuous year of 1957, follows a Russian Jewish family living in Britain amid the fear and excitement of the nation’s first Hydrogen Bomb test. The
cast also includes Toby Stephens, Timothy Spall (as lord Arthur Wallington), Linus Roache (who plays an MP, the husband of Keeley's character)! Toby Stephens leads the cast as Samuel, a 40-year-old Russian Jewish émigré, inventor and designer of hearing aids whose clients include the
former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. He is approached by MI5 to demonstrate his work but they actually want him to spy on his new friends played by Keeley and Linus. Stay tuned, as tomorrow the spy is bringing you a spotlight on Keeley's new series Traitors.
|The story of the new series is set at the end of the 1950s!|
|The new series should start sometime this spring, probably between Keeley's new series Traitors and the final season of her The Durrells series.|
